    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Reston, VA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    HR call, Skype Interview, Phone interview. That's it.

    Not too many technical questions. The company wants to hire qualified as well as great people.

    Just be yourself and make an impression. Of course it is vital to answer questions eloquently and demonstrate your competence as a candidate. That is a given, but beyond that you need to be remembered to be considered for any position.

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    I was brought in to interview for what I was told was a community manager position, which sounded right up my alley. My first impression when I got there was that the office looked like a sweatshop - hundreds of bodies in a single room (which apparently used to be a trading room floor), crammed together, with no personal space. I interviewed with two people who apparently didn't even know what position I was being interviewed for. Then I was told "We are looking for writers." Well that's funny, since I was told something totally different by the recruiter. Complete waste of time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter and had a 15 minute phone screening with her. Next had a 30 minute Skype interview with higher positioned employee. Had a third interview with a senior HR manager that was remote. First two interviews were enjoyable, but the last one was difficult. The senior HR came off as someone who has worked there too long and does not enjoy the company structure.

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at VMware in July 2010.

    Interview

    It was a long, long process. They were extremely slow with their offer and I had to get a job to make ends meet in the mean time during this process. Kept saying this will be your start date and it would get pushed a few days, a week, two weeks. It was extremely frustrating.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at VMware (Denver, CO) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I heard back from HR the day after I submitted my resume online. I had a brief telephone interview; my in person interview was scheduled at the same time for the next week. However, after taking the time to visit their office, still not sure why they interviewed me. It was obvious that they had already selected a candidate. Never heard back from the hiring manager or HR after in person interview. Nothing at all.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware in March 2018.

    Interview

    HR call, senior consultant phone interview 1, senior consultant phone interview 2, and then video call by hiring manager. The HR call was to talk about the position (not actually an "interview"). The remaining three interviews questioned your personality and character. They want to hire really good people who will fit into the company culture. Definitely do your research on EPIC2 values and impress them with that. They are a great company looking for great people - be yourself and always be honest. They asked me if I was ready to lead a team, and I answered no, but the interviewer appreciated me for being honest.

    Associate Systems Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Reston, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process consisted of an initial interview with the HR recruiter then was followed by two interviews from different Directors of Architecture over the next couple weeks. All of the interviews seemed to go well and was under the impression that I would be a good fit. However, was told via an email that they would not be moving forward. Even after emailing asking for feedback I was given no explanation as to why. Additionally, the position seemed rather new and I was given very different answers from the interviewers about what the role of the job would actually be.
